Does your understanding extend to the difference between a promise and an opinion? The truth is that Daniels never promised to put Indiana on Central time. When asked, he said that he thought Central made the most sense. If those counties (or you) are stupid enough to think that this was some kind of rock solid commitment ...That these counties went to Central assuming that the Governor would live up to his campaign promise of putting Indiana on Central time. Of course, thanks to the golf lobby and others, Indiana remains in the same time zone as New York and Washington DC as oppose to say, Chicago. Oh well.
More truth - Daniels would have preferred Central Time for most of the state - but politically that wasn't possible. He always knew that the entire state would not be in a single time zone - and much as he may have privatley preferred that it was never pretended that there wouldn't be a line drawn somewhere.
There are lots of legitimate things to criticize Mitch (or Bauer, etc...) for - but whining about a broken promise that was never made is no more itelligent than the fools that can only mock his height or Pat's hair.
